Over 30,000 people turned out to march for equality in Sydney this Sunday 10 September 2017.
The rally came just days after the High Court gave the green light to Malcolm Turnbull's expensive, unnecessary and harmful postal survey on marriage equality.
Australian Services Union member organisation Get Up!, along with Union Pride, PFLAG, Mardi Gras, Rainbow Families, Just Equal, Gay and Lesbian Rights Lobby and Equal Marriage Rights Australia organised the event, which was the largest demonstration for LGBT rights in Australia’s history.
People of all ages and backgrounds filled Town Hall Square and spilled out onto George street to listen to speeches from Tim Blackman, Sally McManus, Tanya Plibersek, Bill Shorten and Sally Rugg, before marching to Customs House to the chants of “Gay, straight, black or white, marriage is a civil right”
ASU members from across Sydney were there to stand up and fight to win equality. We are proud to be supporting the YES campaign, and it’s fantastic to see so many others supporting it too.
